6.4.13 Course Calendar
Figure 6.40: Course Calendar
The Course Calendar can be accessed from any page in the Instructor
Module where a course has been selected, by clicking "Course Calendar"
in the Upcoming Due Dates box in the right-hand margin. It is similar to
the Course Calendar viewed by students, but also permits you to create
and modify assignments
(Secs. 6.4.1 - 6.4.9).
The Course Calendar shows all "assignments" in the course, one month at a time, with their
start and end dates (Fig. 6.40).
The Course Calendar provides a link to the "Edit all assignment
dates" page (Sec. 6.4.11).
Date Range. Hovering your mouse pointer over
either a start date or an end date will highlight both the start date
and the end date for the assignment. Clicking on either a start date
or an end date will open an information box containing links for editing
or viewing more details about the assignment. New assignments can be
created from the menu just above the Calendar display.
Calendar and Gradebook. The Course Calendar
is parallel to the Gradebook, as it is based on ALEKS assignments.
All assignments appearing in the Calendar may be included in the course
grading scheme. Assignments do not have to be
graded, however, to appear in the Calendar. All assignments, graded or
not, will appear in the Calendar unless deliberately excluded.
The contents of the Calendar can also be shown in simple list format by
using the link "view as list" to upper left.
Calendar Notes. It is also possible to add arbitrary
notes to the Calendar by clicking the link, "Add note to Calendar"
